About the Creamery & its history
The Creamery Café is in the old creamery which was used to make Apley Cheese from 1956 until 1965. Milk from the Apley Estate’s pedigree dairy shorthorns was piped in & processed into a Cheshire variety cheese using traditional methods & 50lb presses.
It was highly regarded in the local area & won 2nd prize nationally. We have converted the barn into a beautiful, light & airy space where you can relax & enjoy delicious food & drink.
Our Head Chef & his team serve up delicious dishes made from local ingredients from the Apley Estate & local suppliers. The daily specials are filled with seasonal delights. We also offer delicious pâté, savoury tarts & homemade soup.
We serve tea & coffee specially selected by Lord Hamilton & various other drinks all day. Look out for our seasonal special drinks!
If you have a sweet tooth, our cakes are freshly baked every day in our onsite bakery & are also available to buy in the shop. Cakes & scones are available daily (subject to availability).
